The Future

New-build-residential_5_We have planning approval for two significant developments which will allow us to continue with our main ministry of residential retreats. The first proposal is for a new accommodation and activity block which will accommodate two groups of 32 retreatants in dormitory and 4-berth en-suite rooms. An artists impression of this is to the left and the location of this new-build is shown in blue on the map below.

The second project is to convert the existing and somewhat derelict ’round building’ into a large retreat and meeting space.

The construction contract was awarded to Priory Gate Limited (  Construction began in February 2016 and is due to be completed around Easter 2017 with our first residential retreats in the new building being in September 2017.   We will be posting updates about the construction on our Facebook page ( and via our Twitter account (@SPEC_Community).
